By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A day after Chrysler said it was cutting nearly 800 dealerships, General Motors told 1,100 of its dealers their contracts with the automaker are ending.

The notices went to the under performing dealers and those with small sales volume.

The company did not disclose the dealers, so we don't know how many in Georgia will be affected.

Wallace Chevrolet in Albany told us they're glad they are not on the list.

"We didn't expect to be on the list so it was no surprise that we weren't, we're one of the areas largest dealers and we plan to stay here for a long time to take care of our customers." Buddy Carver, Wallace Chevrolet General Manager.

The 1,100 dealer franchises will close by the end of next year.
